The article considers main types of an agents architecture applicable in energetics, and also architecture of Multi-Agents systems (MAS) including these agents and the ways of organization of agents interaction of similar systems. The purposes and restrictions of offered MAS are introduced. The purposes are – the power balance and a minimum costs, and restrictions include - restrictions on current and the capacity of lines. Definitions of ontology of concepts and ontology of actions are presented. Ontologies of concepts are used by agents for the description of concepts or the statuses of components and cables in a distributive network, and ontologies of actions are used for the indication of actions of agents. Communication of agents is provided by means of asynchronous mailing of messages, using certain templates of messages. The operation of the offered MAC is considered on the example of a fragment of the scheme of a distributive network. The results of test modeling  showed good results of the offered MAS.


Keywords: the agent, the distributed generation, Multi-Agent system, power industry, management of the agents interaction
